City of Selkirk Streets and Traffic

Snow Clearing

Snow and ice control is a service provided by the Operations Department to ensure the safe movement of vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

The city has a policy that establishes a quality standard for snow clearing, snow removal, sanding of streets, lanes and sidewalks and city-owned parking lots with the co-operation of city residents.

The city’s goal is to maintain the streets, lanes, sidewalks and city-owned parking lots in a safe and functional condition, so economic losses to people and business are minimized and emergency vehicles can make it to their destinations safely during winter months. The city’s goal is to provide equitable service to all citizens. Click to view complete Snow Clearing Policy or for a quick view What to expect during a storm.

 

Street Cleaning

In the spring time, major cleaning events are scheduled typically from mid April to the end of June to facilitate the removal of accumulated gravel left over from the previous winter.  When major cleaning events are scheduled, signs will be installed notifying area residents and downtown businesses of cleaning activities.  Most street cleaning is done at night to avoid heavier traffic normally found during the day.  Boulevard sweeping of the winter’s sand deposits is done during this period as well.Sweeper

Throughout the remainder of the summer and fall, the street sweeping equipment is on the streets daily keeping our roadways clean of debris from curb to curb.

As with any heavy machines, the public are advised to stay back from street cleaning equipment when it is in use.
